    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleI gave this title three stars because in my opinion it fulfilled only half of its promise Why experts keep failing us and how to know when not to trust them It did a great job explaining why experts keep failing us but when it comes to figuring out when not to trust themwell the author doesn't have a clue either The bottom line is the odds of the experts being right are about the same as winning a crap shootThis book is worth reading to the extent that most people actually believe that the experts are right most of the time I once had a blog argument with a dreamer who chided me for daring to suggest that scientists taking government grant money would be bias toward the government's preconcieved conclusions Silly me Turns out this happens a lot than you think according to Freedman's research After two weeks of reading however I'm still pretty much on my own when it

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleThe one expert who is never wrongGod His transcendent word is never wrong and His universal moral laws are never wrong Freedman's book only highlights the importance of having a biblical epistemology In the beginning was Logos and the Logos was with God and the Logos wasis God Human foundations for knowledge are inadeuate Freedman ignores the uestion of WHY scientists should bother with ethics Certainly ethics are foundational to science Ironically that is a uestion science cannot answer

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleI picked up Wrong Why Experts Keep Failing Us and How to Know When not to Trust Them by David Freedman on a whim The book really offered very little that was new or particularly enlightening; it was useful as a reminder of how even well meaning and well constructed research can go wrong as well the realities of publishing and the ways in which the need for new and compelling materials magnifies the problem All of this is interesting but not interesting enough to fill an entire book a book that basically tells the reader to trust his or her own common sense and approach expert information with a healthy dose of skepticism The simple truth is that we are all overwhelmed with too much information and too much media all competing to win our attention and loyalty We want simple answers and

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleThis book is an all out assault on authoritarianism It encourages you to evaluate alternative sources for persepective in life even to conduct your own researchexperiments This books get right at the HEART of what motivates todays scientistsbusiness analysts Reading this you will see just how far from exact the scientific method can be You will se why you can be told conflicting things about the same foods You will learn the MANY ways in which scientist can alter data and misinterpret findings as well as their motivation for doing so This book was reccomended to me by a guy who taught PHYSICS classes at MIT at the age of 16 Genius material for sure One of the best books i have ever read The people who criticize this book likely do so because the author is unable to give them concrete answers on how to obtain the truth this

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleDisappointing not because it's a bad book but because I have always had faith in Science than is apparently justified Freedman makes a strong case for why even meticulous science is freuently dead wrong never mind all the management fads and junk science that clutter up the mediaFreedman doesn't have a solution for the problem just an approach for living with it The best defense against experts turns out to be common sense and critical thinking skills and a little healthy skepticism can go a long way

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleI like this book because it sums up my position on many of the science findings that come out regularly in the media be skeptical Be very very skeptical That said I found the book suffered from some flaws such as using dubious studies to back up points that the author wanted to make although he did mention that it's highly probable th

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleThere is so much information in this book that make you really start to think about what experts say I have always been leery about the information I receive from doctors and other professionals Like so many things in life there is never a clear cut answer It all depends on interpretation I liked having my thoughts reinforced with David's book

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleThe library wanted it back and with some background in data analysis I was struggling a bit The urge to separate and sort the data into usable uestionable anecdotal columns was slowing up progress It's good information Just a bit jumbledAlso preaching to the choir so to speak I already know how much nonsense gets tossed out for consumption I don't need it demonstrated It was fun for a bit but I have other reading to doI might borrow it back I might not Wrote down the page number I stopped on just in caseDid skim the massive post book segments before handing it over Particularly enjoyed the collection of directly conflicting advice from expert sourcesStatistics Most of them are pretty close to half right with some scattered opinions and a few

    Wrong PDF/EPUB ¼ Kindle Edition wrong kindle, Wrong KindleI read this book only because a neighbor thrust it upon me She's a tea party fan so I was immediately suspect about the book But I tried to be fair minded as I readskimmedflipped The best I can say is that this book might be useful to someone who believes headlines heshe sees in the grocery store line tabloids I mean Or even those who believe that the latest scientific finding about xyz is the final word on xyz The author says too often that scientists deliberately mislead the public by publishing findings that are later disproved I object Science is never settled completely and many ideas are found to be off the mark by scientists who do further research It's very true that many findings are overhyped especially with the rise of the internet and social
